At 54 years old, Kerrie Bowie has completed the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF) Bike Ride six times. A gruelling 840 kilometres of pedal power from Torquay to Adelaide, riders raise funds and awareness to help the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF).
In 2014, a group of inspirational Herbalife Nutrition Independent Distributors teamed up to tackle the six-day ride from South West Victoria to the South Australian capital city. Their goal was simple; to help the HNF help disadvantaged and at-risk youth with nutrition education.
The 2019 event saw 23 riders and 21 crew raise over $80,000 for HNF’s six Casa centres across Australia and New Zealand, which support charitable organisations that give vulnerable children the nutrition education they need to reach their full potential.
Kerrie’s connect to HNF is personal. She recalls the struggles she and her family experienced in 1974 following Cyclone Tracy when they were evacuated, forcing them to leave their whole life behind them.
“The one thing that made the biggest impression on me, during the aftermath of the cyclone, was the Red Cross, the Military Services and other charity organisations – I can’t fathom where would we have been without them. Being able to give back to the community is extremely important to me, which is why I love the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation,” she said.
“I jumped at the opportunity to increase the awareness of the Foundation and of course, raise money by participating in the bike ride. Without a dedicated nutrition program, I would not get my body through it. It is the toughest journey I have ever completed, and each year I have been blown away with how lightning fast my recovery has been.”
“The older I get, the younger I feel and the more active I have become. I love feeling healthy!”
“I just love the freedom and personal growth that being a Herbalife Nutrition Independent Member gives me. However, the best part is having a positive impact on others by helping them live a healthier and happier life too! Now that is cool.”
